Healthy and Easy, Street Stand Potato Tacos with white sauce and avocado.

potato tacos

There is a little taco stand here in San Diego called Pedro’s Tacos. They only have 4 locations and they are the ultimate fast and cheap Mexican food joint. Being a vegetarian I get a little tired of the old bean and cheese burrito and I got daring one day and tried a potato taco. I fell in love. The only problem is that they can be a bit high in calories with deep fried hash brown wedges, white sauce and tortilla. I knew I could make a really good replica that was a whole lot healthier. And I did!

These are so easy to make and taste fantastic. When I shared on my Facebook Page that we were having “Potato Tacos” for dinner I got lots of “what are those” comments and I knew I needed to share these with you all right away!

How to make these awesome tacos:

  1. I started with some low-carb tortillas that were warmed in the oven… just till they got a bit soft.
  2. While your tortilla is warming up place frozen hash brown wedges onto a baking sheet. Spray the sheet and the wedges with olive oil. <— this is so important as it crisps it up and gives it the feel of being fried. Place in the oven at 425 till crispy {about 5-10 min}. Flip half way through.
  3. Place a tortilla on a plate. Layer a good amount of cabbage onto the tortilla. Add a hash brown wedge onto the cabbage. Slice some avocado onto the wedge. Top with your favorite salsa and white sauce.

My favorite homemade white sauce: Add mayonnaise, sour cream, Greek yogurt or your favorite vegan alternative {I use vegan mayo} to equal parts of vinegar or citrus juice {I use organic coconut vinegar} Mix well. Season with your favorite spicy seasoning mix. I add a pinch of salt, pepper, garlic, and chili peppers. Refrigerate for a couple hours to let the flavors melt together… or eat right away!
